HARARE (Reuters) - Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe said on Tuesday no-one wanted to kill opposition leader Morgan Tsvangirai and he was under no threat.
“Now that the people have come out, the MDC sees this great wave of the masses, and Tsvangirai is frightened. He has run to seek refuge at the Dutch embassy. What for? These are voters, they will do you no harm. No-one wants to kill Tsvangirai,” Mugabe said at a rally in the west of the country.
Tsvangirai pulled out of the June 27 presidential run-off election on Sunday, saying his supporters would risk their lives if they voted.
